Before the contest we went to the Legacy Skatepark with Collin Provost, Daan van der Linden, Grant Taylor and Arto Saari.
Stop #6 of Volcom’s Wild In The Parks tour pushed north of the boarder to Canada’s Legacy Skatepark in Ottawa, ON on Saturday August 8, 2015.
Legacy skatepark is a 15-minute drive from the downtown sector of Canada’s capital city of Ottawa. The park’s rad history and grunge feel is something that cannot be replicated. The freewheeling spirit of that park allows a sense of “anarchy” back into skateboarding, which sometimes gets lost. Above all else, this is a super fun spot to rip and the locals do just that. On any given day you will see tranny guys blasting, tech guys melting minds, or even the occasional “large guy” game of skate. All these antics made for another impactful Wild In The Parks with our Canadian brethren.
This frontside boardslide in the 14 & Under Division prelims was the first one Ben Pearson ever landed on the rail. Ben then made good on a promise to shuv out in finals later that day.
Bailey Seager took 1st in the 14 & Under Division with tricks like this crook to backlip in zone 3.
Taking home 1st in the 15-21 Division, Matt Racine slid this front blunt down the rail with ease.
Brandon Brilliant finished 7th in the 15-21 Division with tricks like this crowd pleasing back tail down the hubba.
Placing 2nd in the 15-21 Division, Nico Labbé pulled this back lip shove 2nd try in finals.
Caswell's Choice, Kirk Roach, kept it calm and collected during the contest. He made this clean kickflip on the double set in prelims and landed a 6th place finish in the 15-21 Division.
Earning himself 3rd in the Open/AM Division, Nolan Saumure pulled this coast-to-coast nose manual nollie flip out no more than 1 minute into finals.
Local ripper and the skate teams guide through Ottawa, Mitch Barrette, killed it with this salad grind across and down to place 4th in the Open/AM Division.
Riley Cronin dropped this laser flip banger on the double set and placed 5th in the Open/AM Division.
Jayden Bono was ripping all day with killer tricks like this 180 switch crook to regs down the rail. He took home 2nd in the Open/AM Division.
Jamie Bennett took the top spot for the Open/AM Division with a grip of tech tricks. He battled this full cab flip down the double set in prelims and proved he could get it again during finals.
